* Hornswoggle's new role as the comedy sidekick for Brodus Clay was originally planned for United States Champion Santino Marella, but plans were changed over the past couple of weeks.
* The claw slam that Lord Tensai uses has been modified for safety precautions, as the hold now comes from the standing position, giving his opponent the ability to land back-first. Originally the move started from Tensai's knee causing the point of impact to be on the back of his opponent's head.
* Christian did not return at Tuesday's WWE Smackdown taping, despite being advertised. He's expected to return once the Extreme Rules PPV has finished. Christian is reportedly booked to be put in the World Heavyweight Title picture with Sheamus and Daniel Bryan.
